Dates of existence



Anna J. Thiessen was a city missionary with the Mennonite Brethren, working in Winnipeg, Manitoba, beginning in 1915. She became the matron of the Mary Martha Home in Winnipeg, which provided a sanctuary for young Mennonite women coming into the city to work as domestics for wealthier Winnipeg families. Often these women worked as domestics to help their families pay off the travel debt incurred while immigrating to Canada.
See GAMEO description of the Mary-Martha Home in Global Anabaptist Mennonite Encyclopedia Online.
